The Power of Emotions (Die Macht der Gefuhle), 1983. Directed by Alexander Kluge.

Alexander Kluge has long been considered one of the most important figures in the “new German cinema,” having made over two dozen films since 1960. He is becoming better-known in the United States through the success of The Blind Director, recently shown at the S.F. International Film Festival.

The Power of Emotions is a collage film abounding in ideas, details and associations. By attempting to define time as a new experience, connections between everyday occurrences, myths, and policy become visible. Co-sponsored by the Goethe Institute, San Francisco.
